Workshop - RCMC - 11 and 12 June 2015

Global Slavery - Representation and Redress

In the workshop ‘Global Slavery and the Exhibitionary Impulse’ discussions around the histories, definitions and representations of slavery will be fostered.

This workshop will explore the practices of making slavery histories public. It brings together curators and scholars from across the world to think about how slavery is and has been represented in West Africa, South Africa, Brazil, the Caribbean, the USA and in Europe. The aim is to raise awareness of and think through the politics, problematics and possibilities of exhibiting and representing slavery within a global perspective.

This event is organised together with Global Interactions, Leiden, and the KITLV. This two part event takes up the topic of Global Slavery.
